Strike by Jennifer Ryder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review, and having read both Spark and Spike I was more than happy to see what Strike, book 3 in the series would have in store.

The book is focused on Jone's the man whore on the MX team. Now I was quite sure that this character would have a hard time changing my opinion of him, as he doesn't really come over as a nice guy to start with in the series, but at the end of book 2 he seemed to be growing up at last.

'Jone's' AKA Spencer Jones, is Aiden's teammate, and he's been doing well this season on the Motocross circuit, and one evening he is sat I a cafe contemplating his lifestyle when he notices a hot young woman sat on her own at a table nearby. After a few hot glances between each other, he goes over to speak to her and introduces himself as Spencer... For once not wanting his MX rep to proceed him.

April, a freelance photographer who is an adrenalin junkie, enjoys running with bulls or jumping out of small air crafts for fun captivates him, and the fact that she drinks beer, and drives off on a Bandit, without fawning all over him make him want to know her better.

April is not without her issues, but she and Spencer had a connection, so she gives him a chance... It's all going quite well until April finds out who Spencer really is.

I am going to leave it there as I don't do spoiler reviews.

The MX boys are Back!!! This story is based on the player Jones. He meets April the outgoing photographer and there's an instant attraction between them. Will he be able to change his ways? You'll just have to read the book and find out.I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, sexy, heartbreaking. Get ready to be teased a lot in this book. It had some super hot scenes that would make you blush. What do you expect this is the sexy Jones we're talking about!! It also gets your heart racing with the MX racing scenes....The author writes it and makes you feel as if you were actually there watching the race. You also get to see some of our old favourite characters Aidan and Eevie and some new exciting characters. Another great installment in the Spark series.

HASH(0x98727354) out of 5 stars Another great story from Jennifer Ryder! 25 Sept. 2014
By Midnight Rainbow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jennifer Ryder does it again with the third book in her Spark series.
After thoroughly enjoying both Spark and Spike telling Eevie and Aidan's story, we get to hear from someone else from the MX world, Aidan's teammate, Jones.

They say a leopard can't change its spots. Well duh, it's genetic! But relating to people? Jennifer has taken that leopard and changed those spots in the form of a player and made him fall in love.
We know from Spark and Spike that Jones is a manwhoring douche but his true personality is given a chance to shine in Strike.
April has been hurt, partly because she doesn't want to be like her mother, or taken for a ride again, so she makes Spencer (Jones) work hard for her affections. He does and it just makes the connection between them that much stronger.

As Jennifer says in her acknowledgements section at the end of the book, the surface of someone isn't always what's going on. You just don't know the whole of someone on their surface personality alone unless you give them a chance. I think this is very true and really liked seeing the better side of Spencer come out in this book. He has to work hard to convince others of the real him too, given they've only ever seen the manwhore side of him.

April helps Spencer shine as he gains more confidence, to not be pigeon-holed and allowed to just be himself.
Of course there are hurdles, (what good book doesn't have them?) and they're mainly in the form of miscommunication and conclusion jumping (certainly not as much fun as base jumping...)

Jennifer hasa great talent of sucking you into the world she creates and as such, I really can't wait until Sting comes around either to find out what she has in store for Detective 'Hottie' Ryan.

Great work, Jennifer!! Wonderful story with great characters well told.

HASH(0x987273a8) out of 5 stars The best one yet 31 Aug. 2014
By Sarah Thomson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Meet Spencer Jones. If you have read either Spark or Spike you will be familiar with Jones - Aidan's motocross teammate. Quite possibly you are like me and don't like him. He's a bit of a pig really. Well - Forget everything you thought you knew! I judged him before I knew him and got a slap in the face for it! I honestly never thought I could like him, today I eat my words.

And April, the super sassy, strong female MC that has Spencer Jones in a spin. I absolutely adored her from the minute I met her.

The slow build of this relationship between 'the manwhore of motocross' and the ballsy, sassy, yet fragile, April, was so endearing and perfect. They are both trying to step out and forge their own identities, both feeling as though nobody ever really sees them for who they really are. This is a relationship where you make the rules up as you go, trying all the while to be seen for who you really are and not have the whole thing come crashing down. Which is difficult when Jones does not do romance, and April's biggest fear is becoming another notch in anybody's bedpost.

Who knew the manwhore had a conscience. After what I had seen and heard from Jones I did not expect to see this different side to him. I was waiting for the twist, knowing it couldn't stay so good and damn if it didn't crush me into pieces. The depth of these characters and the layers to their personalities had me hooked.

From Crazy redheads and the slew of women in Jones past to April's grizzly bear, disapproving father who doesn't think
anybody is good enough for his little girl, especially a womanising motocross rider - these two face many challenges, managing to make it through most.

Jennifer Ryder nailed this book and her characters. The complexities of human nature were portrayed perfectly giving her characters layers and a depth not often seen in todays books. The opposing parts of a person's personality hidden by masks they both wore so well. This book goes to show you can never judge anyone - what you see is not necessarily who they really are.

I have been a huge fan of Jennifer Ryder since she released Spark but this is the best one yet by far and I am one hundred percent in love with both Spencer and April. All I have to say now is - Aidan who?

"Well tell me when you're a definite, because whether you want me or not, April, I am already yours."

I am going to leave it there as I don't do spoiler reviews.

But all I can say is Ms Ryder does a great job of weaving a romantic tale of two people who are at that point in their lives when they need to make a change, to grab onto that chance of happiness, the way Ms Ryder has peeled back the layers of each character during the story made me grow to like and root for Spencer as he fights to get his girl.

I loved April, she was a bit broken, but instead of shrinking into her shell she'd headed out into the world to explore, experience and create herself a flourishing career, but even though she is outwardly is confident her past still gives her those doubts that we all have deep down, so I could relate quite well with her.

I have always found Ms Ryder's books to flow well, you get caught up in the story and I really did not want to put the book down, it held my attention throughout.

I would also like to say that the dedication also touched me, as it struck a chord with me, as I was told something similar as a young girl, I am and always will be a romantic who believes in a HEA... After all I got mine.

I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and also catching up with Aiden and Eevie, and I wonder what Ms Ryder will have in store for us in her next book.

I can't wait to find out.

HASH(0x98727630) out of 5 stars A powerful story of having faith, second chances and embracing who you are 29 Aug. 2014
By Glass Paper Ink Bookblog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I started beta reading for Jennifer Ryder I fell in love with the world she created, I'd never read anything about MX boys before and instantly she had me hooked. The world of Aiden & Eevie had me transfixed, Aiden with alpha sexiness and giant heart and Eevie with her strong will and innocence, these characters wove their way into my heart.

Strike, the third novel in the series, focuses on Spencer Jones, Aiden's teammate, he's young, attractive, and definitely enjoying the spoils of motor cross, with women falling at his feet. His life is work, motorcross and plenty of no strings attached nights with available women and it seems to be suiting him, until he meets April.

April, self confessed tomboy, lover of high adrenaline sports, motorbike rider, from the second Spencer lays eyes on her he's hooked. April is direct, funny, confident and stunning, she immediately pushes him to be more, to prove himself worthy of a chance with her.

While these characters are both so outwardly confident, what I adored so much is that they both question themselves, question their professions, their choices, their pasts. I connected so deeply with April, I felt with such painful clarity her questioning herself, if she is enough, because I've struggled with that too, I've asked myself the same question. The more I read, the more I fell in love with her, with her spirit, her tenacity - reading Strike, experiencing it, was freeing in a way few books have been for me.

Ryder paces this story perfectly, it had my attention from the first page to the last lines, without a doubt Strike is Jennifer's best work to date, from the dedication I knew this story was going to be special, my expectations were high and Ryder did not disappoint.

HASH(0x987275d0) out of 5 stars The writing in this book is seamless. I love the wit from the characters – even when they are in their turmoil 27 Feb. 2015
By Karen's Book Haven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh Jones! Manwhore. Commitmentphobe. Untouchable. And then there’s Spencer. Attentive. Delicious and just so loveable. How the hell those two are the same person – takes a truly masterful author.
I’ll be the first to admit. Couldn’t stand Jones. Wanted nothing to do with him while reading about him in Spike and then to find out he gets his own story – let’s just say, wasn’t thrilled. And true to his form, his emotional detachment to anything remotely to do with a relationship is blindingly obvious.
Now, let’s get to April. I get why the author says she’d turn for April, totally understand what she means. I think there’s a beautiful fragility to April’s character that it’s hard for anyone to not to also fall in love with her. I love how she calls all the shots when it comes to Spencer. She really did make the boy into a man.
The writing in this book is seamless. I love the wit from the characters – even when they are in their turmoil – the writing hits your right in the heart and I was waiting for him to walk after April finally allowed him completely into her life but I’m glad to say – he didn’t. If anything, he fought the good fight and came out on top. Like I said – he’s a man now. The love triangle is well written even though we all know who is the owner of April’s heart.
The way Ryder brings in characters is another strength for her. Their introductions are seamless and they add to the variety and complexity of each book.
I bought my own copy of this book. This can be read as a standalone but where’s the fun in that? Strike is book three in the series following Spark and Spike.
